WHAT I READ LAST
Unfortunately, I did not finish this book. It was confusing and written very strangely. I thought maybe it was me so I looked up some reviews and it looks like I was not the only one. I didn’t expect another The Book Thief which I think some of the readers were expecting. I am curious if anyone else has read it. If so, let me know your thoughts.
I absolutely loved this book! I am a sucker for road trip books. The story was good and not cliche and I loved the idea of the characters trading up to make money through out their road trip. Trading up is trading lesser value items with other people for more expensive items. For example, CDs for a $50 gift card or a rubber band for a non working cell phone. The two main characters are each hiding an embarrassing family secret which is told through the book which kept me turning the pages. Definitely a fun and entertaining read.
What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ?
Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we?
But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura.
WHAT I AM READING NEXT
No idea! I have a couple books on hold at the library that will hopefully come in soon so maybe I will read one of those. Any suggestions?
